Oops. Scaramucci unwisely compares Linda Tripp to the reporter he blabbed to

Scaramucci compared Lizza to the former civil servant for publishing the infamous interaction between him and the reporter where he used obscene words to describe senior officials working in the White House.

Lizza published the contents of a phone call he had with Scaramucci last month shortly before the former communications director resigned.

Scaramucci's short-lived tenure as the White House director of communications could become a film or television series.

There will be plenty to gab about, not least of all his profanity-peppered interview with the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza, in which he unloaded in colorful terms on fellow Trump aides.

Tripp was a White House staffer in the late '90s who secretly recorded conversations she had with her friend and colleague Monica Lewinsky about Lewinsky's admitted sexual relationship with President Bill Clinton. "People know. And he is up at night not being able to live with himself", Scaramucci said on Twitter.

In a Wednesday night tweet, Scaramucci wrote, "He absolutely taped the call without my permission". But he has aired various grievances against the New Yorker journalist.

Just days after the former investor's interaction with Lizzy was published, Trump abruptly fired him.

He then went on to call Lizza a "lowlife".

Though everyone agrees the explosive parts of the call were on the record, the NY financier is now mad that Lizza taped the call, calling him a #lowlife.

Perhaps we'll get some more answers when Scaramucci appears on The Late Show next week, as host Stephen Colbert announced today that the Mooch will be his guest on August 14.
